What determines the cost of Keeshond shipping

Here's what you need to know about safely transporting your Keeshond.

Time ⏱⏱⏱

Ground and air travel have different associated costs. Flying is typically the fastest option, but also the most expensive and taxing on your pet.

Travel distance

The further you need to transport your pet, the more it'll cost. If you're using ground transportation, you'll have to factor in fuel costs, lodging, meals on the road and wear-and-tear on your vehicle. These costs are applicable whether you drive the pet yourself or you hire a transporter through CitizenShipper. Airlines charge more for longer plane rides as well. This is due to the cost of fuel and the need compensate pilots and flight attendants.

Pet size

Smaller pets are easier – and less expensive – to transport. If you’re flying your Keeshond, they’ll need to travel in the cargo hold if they’re over 20 pounds. You’ll also need to buy a USDA-approved crate, which can cost around $200. With ground transport, it’s easier for drivers to accommodate small pets.

Health clearance and travel equipment

The first step to transporting your Keeshond is ensuring they’re healthy enough to travel. Most species require a vet-issued health certificate to cross state lines. This will cost $50 to $300. You’ll likely need to purchase some equipment too – such as a crate and travel supplies.

Keeshond: The Plush-Haired Companions

Origins and Temperament

Keeshonds, with their spitz-like features and plush silver-grey coats, hail from the Netherlands and are known for their spirited and friendly nature. Intensely loyal and intelligent, they were once companions and watchdogs on Dutch vessels. These alert and affectionate canines form strong bonds, making them sensitive travelers. Their social temperament means they prefer not to be left alone for extended periods, necessitating constant human presence during their travels.

Size and Physical Needs

Typically ranging from 35 to 45 pounds, Keeshonds are a medium-sized breed requiring a comfortable amount of space to stretch and lie down during transit. Their lush double coat and active disposition call for moderate exercise and climate-controlled environments to avoid overheating. When transporting a Keeshond, it is paramount to provide a ventilated carrier that accommodates their size and an atmosphere that emulates their regular living conditions.

Common Health Considerations

Keeshonds are prone to certain hereditary conditions like hip dysplasia and heart disease. Proper health documentation, including a recent health check, should be prepared ahead of transport. It’s crucial to maintain their regular medication schedule and introduce preventive measures to minimize the risk of travel-related health complications.

How to prepare your Keeshond for transport

At CitizenShipper, we pride ourselves on making pet transportation a breeze. However, there are things you can do ahead of time to make your best friend’s trip safer and more comfortable.

Talk to your veterinarian

Your pet’s safety is number one – that’s why checking in with your vet before finalizing any travel plans is essential.

Can’t make it to the vet’s office in time? Conveniently video chat with a qualified veterinarian at FirstVet – one of our amazing partners.

Here are the questions you’ll want to ask your vet:

  • Is my pet healthy enough for transport?
  • Is my pet up to date on their vaccines?
  • Is my pet’s microchip still in place and scannable?

Health and Vaccination Records

Gather up-to-date health and vaccination records before transit and keep them within reach to ensure a smooth transportation process. Health certificates and proof of rabies vaccination are often mandatory for travel.

Identification and Tracking

A collar with ID tags and an up-to-date microchip are indispensable forms of identification. For additional security, consider a GPS tracker that can attach to the Keeshond’s collar, providing real-time location updates.

Comfort Items and Familiar Scents

Guarantee your Keeshond’s ease by including a favorite blanket or toy infused with home scents, and a piece of clothing worn by the owner, to provide comfort in unfamiliar transit conditions.

Essential pet transport travel supplies include:

  • Food, bowls and fresh water
  • Collars and leashes
  • Waste bags
  • Medication
  • First-aid supplies
  • Any travel documents
  • A secure, USDA-approved travel crate

Traveling to a new place is exciting but stressful for your pet. Pack their favorite toys, a bed or a comfy blanket to help them enjoy their journey. Familiar items remind them of home and will soothe their anxiety.

Tailored Travel Tips for Keeshond

Managing Anxiety and Stress

Familiarize your Keeshond with the travel crate pre-departure to reduce travel anxiety. Soothing pheromone sprays, favorite toys or anxiety vests can also help create a calming environment.

Exercise and Bathroom Breaks

Keeshonds need regular movement; schedule frequent stops every 2-3 hours for exercise and bathroom needs. These breaks will also help to stretch their legs and discourage restlessness.

Temperature Control and Hydration

Ensure the vehicle is well-ventilated, not too hot or cold, considering the Keeshond's thick fur. Keep fresh water accessible and monitor your pet to maintain proper hydration throughout the trip.

Post Transportation Care for your Keeshond

Adjustment to New Surroundings

Keeshonds are usually adaptable but may require time to get accustomed to new settings. Introduce them gradually to their new environment, maintaining close physical contact to provide reassurance.

Monitoring Health Post-Travel

Post-travel, it is vital to monitor your Keeshond for any signs of stress or illness. If any concerning symptoms arise, consult with a veterinarian promptly.

Continuing Care and Routine

Establishing a consistent routine similar to what your Keeshond had prior to the move can greatly aid in their adjustment. Consistent feeding times, walks, and play sessions help reinforce a sense of familiarity and security.
